Portrait of a Gazelle, by Bigasso.
Marley 40x40cm Oil on Canvas
Carrying on my recent oil/portraiture, here's one I have completed of my son Marley. Not a perfect resemblance, but close. The digital reproduction here doesn't quite get the nuances of the original canvas - less texture. But I'm pleased with the painting on the whole. Getting the hang of using oils in a way I haven't really before, I think, and enjoying the manipulation of colour, paint and glazing.
By the way, if you don't get the reference in the blog title, you need to watch more episodes of "Thunderbirds".
